October is finally here! Definitely my favorite season of the year as the weather is finally cooling off… Ok!! maybe as we are still having high 90º  during the day, however 50º this morning was truly a  pleasure. The windows are open, the fresh crisp morning air settling in the house…. stop hibernating and start enjoying the outdoors. We love it!!

By now you have realized that my son has a lot to do with the dinner selection, and tonight of course it was  his choice. He wanted pasta. As we are perusing the grocery store isles he suggested we try a new pasta shape. Force of habit I was directed to my favorite brands, but seeing that this was his night, I let him choose. Fettuccine Paglia e Fieno egg pasta from Eduardo’s  was his choice. I was looking forward to try it. He was looking forward to see if he could taste the spinach.

A traditional Carbonara, our “go to” sauce, was delicious with it. Not over powering and perfect with the Fettuccine. Egg pasta tastes so much richer that your usual dry pasta. Cooks the same amount of time but like all fresh homemade pasta, it grows. We had seconds…

Do not be intimidated by the raw eggs. Once beaten and the hot pasta and sauce poured over, the egg will be cooked.
